ST. LOUIS, Mo. (KMOV) - A kangaroo hopped its way through a Jefferson County neighborhood on Sunday morning.

Leaving her High Ridge driveway, Julia Hidemann met her new, rather exotic, neighbor.

You can see in a video from Hidemann the kangaroo hopping up the road.

She said it went up a few houses before hopping off into the woods.

News 4 learned the kangaroo is named Rueben and is from the Exotic Petting Zoo S and S farms in High Ridge. We were told Rueben is well-behaved and was only gone for 45 minutes before being brought back to the farm.
